1. Blessed is the man, the man who does not walk
in the counsel of the ungodly-blessed is that man.
He who rejects the way, rejects the way of sin
and who turns away from scoffing-blessed is that man.
But his delight-by day and night-
is the law of God Almighty.

2. He is like a tree-a tree that flourishes
being planted by the water-blessed is that man.
He will bring forth fruit-his leaf will wither not-
for in all he does he prospers-blessed is that man.
For his delight-by day and night-
is the law of God Almighty.

3. The ungodly are not so-for they are like the chaff
which the wind blows clean away-the ungodly are not so.
The ungodly will not stand-upon the judgement day
nor belong to God's own people-the ungodly will not stand.
But God knows the way of righteous men
and ungodly ways will perish.

Blessed is the man, the man who does not walk
in the counsel of the ungodly-blessed is that man.
